Making a Statement with Your Santa Clarita Driveway

    The driveway is important to a buyer

    Our Experience has shown that the “desire to buy” starts at a sellers curb. How is the curb appeal of the home from the street?  When the drive way has been paid special attention to – our buyers usually find that the inside of the home is in tip-top-shape.  In fact, if a homeowner is so caring to pay the utmost attention to his/her driveway, the rest of the home will show wonderfully!

    Making a statement with your Santa Clarita Valley driveway can add value to your home while enhancing its curb appeal. The driveway is an integral part of your property, serving as a welcome mat, and while it may be often overlooked, it doesn’t have to be. When examining the exterior of your home take a good look at your driveway and what it says about you and your home.

    Driveways take a lot of wear and tear but they don’t have to be worn pavement. From elegant pavers, to simple concrete rectangles, a driveway can make a statement, one which can add appeal to your home. Attractive driveway designs can include grid like or porous pavers that can include groundcover or grass in their midst, offering a landscaped look with the stability of brick or stone for driving on. In addition pavers can be different sizes, shapes, and colors and laid down to create designs or patterns that are in keeping with your home’s style of architecture. A wide black strip is not your only option!

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA.
